networking security

Generally there is no security advantage to the Etherent hardware transmission standards. BUT, using fiber carries some inherent improvement in security. You can easily do a hardware tap into a wired network with a clip on amplifier without breaking into the cable. Fiber is more difficult to handle, you have to cut into it nad then make a good splice.

Not worth the added cost of fiber unless you are doing classified work.

I would have to agree with LeeJend as usual. :p You can't just "jack" into a Fiber network w/out someone taking notice.
